Golden Globe 2012 Idris Elba
On the movie side of the Golden Globe Awards spectrum, Sunday night’s winners were not terribly surprising.
“The Descendants”? Sort of figured that would win best drama. “The Artist”? A shoo-in, even without all the cute, poochy showmanship from Uggie the dog.
But the evening of film-and-television-show adulation that was Golden Globes 2012 did give us a a few semi-shockers. These were the five biggest. Vote in the poll below for the one you found most unexpected.
With William Hurt and “Downton Abbey’s” Hugh Bonneville in the same category, the actor formerly known as Stringer Bell didn’t seem like a sure thing. But he managed to win, bringing him to the stage where he could accept his Globe and make female viewers swoon, just as nature intended.
